In this presentation, I will describe general tendencies of Japanese university students’ behavioral, cognitive, social and emotional engagement in English classroom. Also general tendencies of positive emotional factors concerning enjoyment including social enjoyment, personal enjoyment and teacher appreciation, and also negative emotion including anxiety will be described. The study also investigates how these factors are inter-related. The study was conducted during the year of the spring semester of 2022. The research questions were to examine 1) the general tendencies of engagement, enjoyment, and anxiety for the Japanese students, 2) how positive emotions including enjoyment and negative emotions including anxiety can affect engagement in the language classroom. In order to investigate the research questions, the descriptive statistics, correlation analyses, and structural equation modeling (SEM) were examined. In descriptive statistics, teacher appreciation and behavioral engagement were high, on the other hand, anxiety and social enjoyment showed low. In correlation analyses, teacher appreciation and personal enjoyment showed a stronger correlation (r<.784). The hypothesized model was analyzed and all paths revealed statistical significance, and Goodness of Fit measure provided by AMOS are CFI =.992, RMSEA=.054. The model showed that students who felt stronger sense of enjoyment are likely to be engaged in classroom activities (with a path coefficient of . 88), and anxiety did not show a stronger path to engagement (with a path coefficient of .02). In this talk, an overall summary of the present study will be described. Authors:
